Friendly Fan Fun


After doing a massive Autumn clean out- I needed some crfating Fun. I've made this card inspired by this beautiful Japanese Doll, that my BF's son bought me back from his trip to Japan last year, isn't she just gorgeous. I love her :) I really wante dto keep some of the white purity about my card, which was way harder than I thought it might be. I created the background by brayering on glossy card stamping the fan, and adding some gold by using the inner bit out of the smooch, and finally some texture by embossing. I've made the fans with handmade Washi paper.

I'm entering this card into 2 cool challenges:
The GC99 Fan Challnege at Ginger Snap Creations
and over at Just Add Ink the theme is Friends or mates for ANZAC Day.
